Unicode Character Encoding

In addition to locale, the other major component of internationalizing software is the use of the Universal Codeset, or Unicode. Most developers know that Unicode is a standard encoding that can be used to support multilingual character sets. Unfortunately, understanding Unicode is not as simple as its name would indicate. Software developers have used a number of character encodings, from ASCII to Unicode, to solve the many problems that arise when developing software applications that can be used worldwide.
